KUALA LUMPUR: China said on Sunday that the United States was making political provocations with its patrols in the disputed South China Sea, as tensions around the strategic waterways mount.
China will continue to construct military facilities on artificial islands it is building, vice foreign minister Liu Zhenmin told a news conference in Kuala Lumpur. The facilities are needed to protect the islands, he said.
Washington was testing Beijing with its insistence on "freedom of navigation" in the strategic waterway, he said.
US presence in the Region will definitely refrain China from Flexing its Muscles!
blow hot and blow cold
Right and China is the epitome of political expression. What a joke, coming from a country which started the whole imbroglio.
You earn your bread ,butter and cheese from USA .You are always looking to grab land from other countries .Only hope one day they will come together and give you royal kick
China has no right to encroach other country land or sea.
its too much: US always interfere others matter .china must attack US
Lol!! China IS PROVOKING BIG Time BUT ALL Other Asians ARE Almost MUM ;))!!
Only Americans Coming Forward Because They HAVE Interests In The Region ;)))!
I suggest China set up a nuclear base in Ormara.
Why only USA? in fact every country should move in that area and show its protest against China's attempt to occupy the sea and the land under it; China should be stopped from expanding its territories thru illegal means or dadagiri;
This time China has rightfully said that its USA escalating discord in this region by meddling in South China Sea.I am certain if all countries claiming parts of Sea join together and invite China to discuss thoroughly it will agree to greater demands or claims.
